    I will wait for a few reasons.

    1. Probably bugs
    2. module support
    3. Don't need to yet

    Anybody who does update please report back :) I"m gonna wait for a while.

  • only thing they are telling improved theme s*x and cpanel thing. ive used beta and not much new things found

  • raider_in_dark said: only thing they are telling improved theme s*x and cpanel thing. ive used beta and not much new things found

    I agree with this. We played with the beta and saw a few CSS tweaks in terms of the backend design. Honestly, that's the biggest change I noticed after playing around with it for about 10 minutes.

    Personally I would love to see WHMCS re-work their admin area as it takes several tabs to for me to get anything done. If they just re-did the ticket pages and added an AJAX tab to see a minified version of client's services (showing the one they highlighted), it would save me about 5 browser tabs.

    All I see is two bug fixes and a new theme.

    Gonna start toying with it tomorrow probably. I doubt it's any buggier than most apps usually are. Then again my small client base can survive some minor WHMCS issues. If I cause a problem I just don't bill people. Everyone wins but me :)

  • I upgraded to v6 and all I can say is that its disappointing, the lack of new features/improvements/bug fixes is just utterly disappointing.

  • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith Top Provider
    edited July 2015

    SIGH watched the preview video and what is the first thing they say.... The most notable new feature is the new responsive theme...... god damn it, what the hell is wrong with developers these days!

    edit: just finished watching it, the entire thing is just a new theme with a bit of an improvement to cPanel integration, beyond disappointing so far.

    Pretty much what we all expected from them. It is however such a shame...

    Isn't this the first major version release since cPanel bought them though? I'm alright with a release that isn't anything to write home about. Not everyone can reinvent the wheel every few years. I know a lot of people like to talk about what's wrong with it but I don't think people mention quite enough the endless hours it has saved them, the hundreds of days out of each year where there were no known vulnerabilities, and the wealth of orders and invoices that went off without any trouble.

    We live in a growing global culture that celebrates complaining. I wish we focused more on the good.

    I think so.

    True, I just feel all the effort spent on pushing the big Six release could have been invested into the development and then let the general public talk about how great it is.

    That is what we pay them for ;)

    Well, my honest hope is that cPanel has cleaned house and spent more time refining the development standards of WHMCS instead of adding features. I don't know what happened behind those doors all this time, but I know that cPanel has never (in my time using it) had the kind of holes that WHMCS has had, that weren't patched with extreme urgency.

    If I can say the same of WHMCS moving forward, I'll be very happy.

    +1.

    Maybe a faster release cycle coming and 6.1, 6.2 etc will bring much more to the table.

  • Not sure why everyone is bitching so much. Grated I haven't tried it yet. But from looking at a developer perspective, supporting composer, namespaces, and using a proper API and ORM makes a dev's life a LOT easier with extending it all. Plus the template overrides is pretty cool as well.

    Oh and it does seem that it supports auto cancellation of Paypal subscriptions. which has bitten me more than once.

    Updated and everything is working fine.

    No problems here. Modules VestaCP, one of the Stripe modules, and FraudRecord. It's up and running on MXroute right now.

  • jmginerjmginer Member, Provider

    The ModulesGarden "Payment Gatewat Charge" module not run with WHMCS 6.

    If active, the client get a error on the checkout process:

    Notice: Undefined property: WHMCS\Smarty::$_tpl_vars in vendor/smarty/smarty/libs/Smarty.class.php on line 738
    

    I've reported the bug to MG.

    Ah that I'm not sure. I jumped in early because I only provision on VestaCP for one reseller, and all cPanel for new customers. I've got a bit less riding on it than others.

    Looking at the support system it does not work with version 6. We are looking into it now. Orders go through but custom fields are not populated after creation.

    I hope that too but with that said even if no new features are added specifically on first release I hope they have fixed some of the things that have been broken for 2 years while they were rewriting.

    If you bought the theme from a third party you'd have to wait for them to release a 6.0 compatible version of the theme... if you're using your own custom header and footer it shouldn't be too hard to port over to whmcs 6.0
